Team USA Profiles Mitchell and Her Medal-Winning Paralympic Career
Winner of a silver medal in discus and a bronze in club throw at the 2016 Games in Rio, Mitchell finds herself facing a fresh round of challenges in pursuit of the top of the podium this year.
Like all athletes, the postponement of the Games from 2020 — and cancellation of many pre-Paralympic competitions — has created uncertainty. If she qualifies, she’ll also have to compete in Tokyo against athletes from her own classification and the next higher one.
But she remains undaunted: “It’s all about the gold medal at this point,” she told Team USA’s website. “There’s either the gold, or there’s nothing.”
